Dr. Christopher Sales, associate professor of environmental engineering, has been exploring how a blast of charged gas, called cold plasma, can be used to eliminate PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) from water. His group from the College of Engineering and the C. & J. Nyheim Plasma Institute recently published its research in the journal Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology.

Sales was recently interviewed by Emily Pontecorvo, a news and politics fellow at Grist, a news outlet focusing on climate, sustainability and social justice. The article, “Researchers blast ‘forever chemicals’ into oblivion with plasma”, was published in Grist on Feb. 24.
